Employees at Essendon Volkswagen, located north west of the Melbourne CBD, were experiencing numerous problems because of the large number of secure websites they had to access each day to do their jobs. Websites were located both on the Internet and the Volkswagen intranet.
As a result, most employees required 10-20 passwords while some had as many as 40 - remembering robust and regularly updated passwords was virtually impossible, so employees resorted to the insecure practices of using the same passwords on multiple sites or writing down passwords near their computer.
In October last year Essendon Volkswagen’s long-term technology partner Network Professional Services recommended Centrify User Suite to solve the problems of password sprawl and insecurity.
Essendon Volkswagen financial controller Les Hogan said Centrify had made a huge difference. “Thanks to Centrify, one password now gives our employees easy access to all the websites they need to do their jobs, which makes them happier and more productive and improves our security.”
